BEST OF 2018
Best Video: “ELASTIC DAYS” by J.Mascis (Sub Pop).

The fact that Dina Martina lipsyncs to J.Mascis’ voice is everything.

 

Best Soundtrack: “SUSPIRIA” by Thom Yorke (XL Records).

Eerie, beautiful and emotional

 

Best Album: “OIL OF EVERY PEARL’S UN- INSIDES” by SOPHIE (MSMSMSM/Future Classic/Transgressive Records).

Too pop to be avant garde, too avant garde to be pop. I hear the future and she’s bright.

 

Best Difficult Album That Gets Better Every Time You Listen To It: “OCELOTE” by Elysia Crampton (Break World Records). 

It’s like a collage of things that won’t go together, but once you decipher it beautiful harmonies arise!

 

Best Album runner up: “AGE OF” by Oneohtrix Point Never (Warp).

Melancholic, medieval, melodic, meandering, mesmerising, music made for an ancient future

 

Best Song: “INCLINED” by Eartheater (PAN).

Hypnotic like a spooky ASMR video.

 

Best Song: “LICKING AN ORCHID” by Yves Tumor (Warp).

A sort of anthem that stings, festers and heals!!!!

 

Best Cover: “I WANNA BE ADORED” by King Woman (Relapse Records).

The Stone Roses classic gets a metal makeover and becomes an even more haunting anthem!

Haunted VIP has a monthly show called ‘Haunted VIP’ on WAV.
An eclectic, “various” mix with no distinction between genre or style. A juxtaposition of extremes (some minor, some major) towards a new energy. A stream of consciousness of the old, the now and the new.
